  • Mixing bowl


For the salad:

  • 1 bunch rainbow chard approximately 5 cups of chopped leaves
  • 1 cup shredded turkey
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1 apple diced

For the dressing:


  • Prepare the chard by washing the leaves and removing them from the stems. Roughly chop the leaves. You can add the stems to the salad too, but I recommend chopping them into smaller pieces.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chard, turkey, dried cranberries, pecans, and diced apples. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and dijon mustard. Taste and add salt if desired.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until well coated. Top with extra pecans or dried cranberries if desired. Enjoy! 


  • If you are making this at another time of year/do not have leftover Thanksgiving turkey, you can prep turkey by putting turkey breasts in the crockpot on low for 4-6 hours. When they're finished cooking, shred them with a fork, add what you want to the salad, and store the rest in the fridge or freezer.
  • This salad will last for 3-5 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
